National University of Ireland, Galway, as part of a wider Academic Simplification suite of projects, is seeking to improve academic administrative efficiencies and assessment data accuracy through the assessment grades. The existing home-grown process for grades return presented a number of issues and, following a review, a decision was made to investigate the use of the Blackboard Grade Journey Tool to automate grade transfer from Blackboard to the Student Information System. The Online Results Entry project went live for all modules in December 2015. This presentation will describe the project requirements and how the Grade Journey Tool has been adapted to meet some (but not all) of these.
